Batman 1989 Michael Keaton 1/4 Figure
AWESOME FIGURE/ COLLECTIBLE
I collect mostly figures from pop-culture (movie, TV, or comic book related) I have been watching the "Hot Toys" adult figures for years, but no way could they ever be in my budget. So when "NECA" announced this as a possibility back in Jan. They really got my attention. I received mine on Wed. after Christmas, and I was totally Blown Away!!! The overall head sculpt alone was enough of a selling point for me. 18 inches is kind of big, but if they (NECA) continues to make A+ Items like these with other Characters (such as the Joker) or other Iconic Pop-cultural Characters from film and TV, I'm a customer for life. The cape, the articulation, the accessories, are all a true tribute to the film character, brought forth as ONLY Michael Keaton could portray. It may not be as "Museum" accurate as the 12" "Hot Toys" version, but the quality and craftsmanship this figure has to offer is WELL WORTH the money!!!! My ONLY complaint is I wish it would have came with a display stand. A figure of this size and weight does not stand well on it's own.
Neca 18" Batman
I just got my batman today this is a great figure neca outdone then selves. the detail is just incredible it looks just like Michael Keaton its made of hard plastic and rubber and comes with a leather like cape and a batarang and grapple gun. The only bad thing is it doesn't stand on its own to well and the bat belt color is off.
I'm s toy collector as well as a toy photographer and I've been waiting for an affordable figure for quite a while. Hot Toys wants to charge you an arm, leg and your firstborn for a figure of this quality. So stoked to have this in my collection at a price I won't feel guilty for.
Awesome figure on a classic
Great detail for a 1/4th scale. However. I wouldn't jump on this immediately because NECA has delayed this about 10 times. This was supposed to come out back in October... It's December now and we're still seeing delays.
Got Mine in a few days ago. I was very surprised about the detail in the figure. Movement is great in the figure. The gadgets that come with the figure needs instruction because it took some time to find out How certain things went with what. Some parts are very fragile. Like the belt clips that hold the gun. I had to glue Mine back because it broke very easily. The cape was OK. The stitching was out of place and hanging off. You could actually see Where it was being worked on. I didn't like that at all. Overall the figure is great! I'm still going through everything that comes with it. I believe the mask can come off but I will look at other reviews online before I start trying to tear the mask off..... great buy to add to my collection!!!!
Beautiful looking figure.
NECA did an incredible job on this figure cosmetically, but durability wise, I'm a bit disappointed. The forearm on the left arm fell off when i took it out of the box and one of the grappling hooks broke when i took it out also.The joints in the knees aren't aligned properly so his knees look warped when you pose him certain ways.. Aside from the negatives i absolutely love the way this figure looks/feels. His cape feels and looks great, everything from the armour, to his shoes look great, and the hands/shoes even have a glossy patent leather look to them. It isn't a hot toys quality figure but for less than $100 you can't go wrong here especially for a quarter scale. NECA even got the batman logo on Keaton's chest just like it looks in the movies. overall rating of 8, just because his forearm fell off and the grappling hook broke when i took it out.
